This traditional-style layout is defined by a creek that winds through the course and is in play on 15 holes. Players are faced with constant ball flight challenges due to the omnipresent creek that adds equal dozes of beauty and bite along the way. While avoiding such a hazard would seem prudent, the strategy on most holes is to land the ball close to the creek resulting in an easier following shot. Bite off as much as you dare, particularly from the 4 th tee, where the fairway bends sharply along the creek. Solid putting is paramount, as green undulations are severe. Built in 1983 in the Paradise Valley area, Stonecreek Golf Club touts a challenging but very playable layout. Only a few minutes from Meridian CondoResorts, this course is beautifully manicured, offers panoramic mountain views, and provides the ideal balance of challenge to reward for all levels of play. Stonecreek rewards good execution, but does not severely penalize errant shots. You can have a fun round of golf and not get beat up.
